Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Bertha

The 71' Bertha's sound just right to me and the solo's average about 45 seconds,so the solo always has a cut off feel to me.With that said you made an eloquent case for the opposite opinion.Sometime in 77' the solo's stretch to 2-3 minutes and that seems just about right.There are 13 versions recommended here and I don't think a case could be made for any of them being more than just a good solo.I surely didn't hear a great solo.I love Bertha and hear it as kind of a sum of it's parts sort of song.
